BLESSED SACRAMENT CATHOLIC SCHOOL
“A NATIONAL SCHOOL OF CHARACTER”
ATTENDANCE LINE: (801) 572-0251, please be sure to call the attendance line by 8:00am.
In today’s gospel Jesus tells Simon to “Put out into deep water and lower your nets for a catch.” Simon said in reply, “Master, we have worked hard all night and have caught nothing, but at your command I will lower the nets.” When they had done this, they caught a great number of fish and their nets were tearing. Luke 5:4-6 They had been fishing all night with no success. We can guess that they were probably DONE—frustrated and tired. But he does what Jesus tells him and catches more then they could handle. Putting out into deep water meant that they were committing fully and deeply to what Jesus was asking of them. Are we willing to fully commit and to follow the directions He gives us?
DID YOU KNOW:
- Hot lunch is available Monday through Thursday! Check out the note below to assure that your child gets a meal. Remember they must be pre-ordered to receive hot lunch.
- On Monday 9/11 all the students will gather in the hall in the morning for a special pledge and prayer to remember Patriot’s Day. Please take a moment on Monday morning to reflect on the sacrifice that has been made for our country and thank a soldier.
- Next week we kick out our Fall fund raiser. Thank you in advance for all of your support.
- Our band program has kicked off this week! Ms. Johnson told me that she is hearing recognizable noise. She also has space available if your child is interested.
- NEW! Archaeology Club started today! We’re really excited about this activity! These activities are very popular, and there is still room for more students. Don’t hesitate to join in.
As we finish up the third week of school, we are grateful for all the support you have shown. Thank you for our lunchtime volunteers! We are well into our routines and the kids are working hard.
Peace and blessings,
Bryan Penn, M.S.Ed.L

Just like last year, our 2017 Fall Fundraiser is a crowdfunding competition with great prizes and rewards for everyone who participates! Parents will be emailed individual donation page links for their students which can be shared across social media. More shares = more money for our students! Watch your email for more information!
We need volunteers to help make this a success!
(Utah Community Action apologizes for unanticipated difficulties in delivery times. Refunds have been given for lunches ordered for the date of September 6th. Thank you for your understanding as we navigate new procedures for the Blessed Sacrament Lunch Program.)
We are excited to share a healthy lunch offering from Utah Community Action for Blessed Sacrament School. When ordering, be sure to note the First and Last Name of your student, as well as their Grade in the box stating “Add additional note to merchant (optional).” This has caused some confusion because it is not optional. Please use this box to direct lunch to your student by adding the name and grade of each student you are purchasing lunch for. It is important to specify “Double” if your student requests the larger lunch option. All orders must be completed online by midnight the night before to receive a lunch, or to request a lunch be canceled. If you know your student will not attend school the next day, please visit Blessed Sacrament School Lunch Program before midnight to make changes.
